You are allowed to launch at the beach you just aren't allowed to drive on the beach. The parking lot is not far though. My friend and I actually carried 2 ski's all the way from parking lot to the water last time we went (no beach tote). My point is it's very do-able especially with a beach tote no problem. The surf there was great every time I went. I will 100% be setting something up. I am working on getting a "Facebook Event" set up. Once I do I will send you the link!
